I got the 9mm. I have only shot 100 rounds so far with no problems. I was hitting water bottles at 40 feet the first time I shot it. Its very easy to strip and clean. My 9 year old son was even hitting water bottles at 25 feet. The only down side I found is the mag springs are very tight and hard to load but they started to get easier only after the 100 rounds. Very good gun for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tack01 Stoeger Cougar 8040 40 cal.
I bought this gun for myself a short time ago. Retired Law Enforcement, and my last duty weapon was a Beretta .40 cal. I've read Stoeger is basically a Beretta at a lower price, and it has several good reviews, so I took the plunge. I threw my first shot off due to excitement, but the rest of my groups were decent for a 25 ft target distance. Even rapid fire I managed a descent grouping. Easy to field strip and clean, easy to assemble. Single action trigger pull is a bit long with empty pressure until it engages the sear, but actual trigger pull is light. If your older like me, get a magazine assist loader.,the springs are tight. My son also likes this gun and is deciding between this or another brand .40 cal

Rated 5 out of 5 by TerryH My first handgun... and I love it.
The Stoeger Cougar .40 S&W is my first handgun, and I have had it for just over a month now. Might I say I love this thing. Before buying this particular gun I shot my friends S&W Sigma .40, and I did not like it. That was my first time shooting a handgun, I come from a longtime shooting shotguns and rifles. Personally I did not like the recoil and long trigger pull on the Sigma, so I was reluctant on buying a .40. While I was out looking at buying my first handgun, I stumbled upon this beauty on a great deal. It fit my hand perfectly, the weight was perfect (a little bit heavier than the Sigma), and something just felt absolutely right about this gun. After I purchased my friend (the owner of the Sigma) and I went to the range. The first shot I took out of the gun was smooth. There was little recoil and it was easy to handle. That first clip I savored every shot. My friend then shot, and he pretty much swore off his Sigma that very moment. Since then I have put about 200 rounds through it, and I want more (just the cost of ammo is up there for the .40). I use the 160 grain (I think) Winchester rounds and not a single problem at all. Breaking the gun down is easy, putting it back together is a pain sometimes (the spring bar doesn't like to set back in easily). Overall though this gun is amazing, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a .40.
